Shape: Triangle
Duration:15 minutes
My wife and I live on a hillside community in San Clemenet called Marblehead. We have a direct view of the Pacific ocean at Dana Point but slightly marred as you move south by rooftops of the homes immediately below our home. At 11.00 p.m. (June 13, 2006), while my wife was asleep, I observed from my second floor bedroom bay window, two extremely shiny objects next to each other. They were hover over the ocean. However, it was impossible to tell how far from me the objects were because of the intensity of the lights. Each object had the same kind of lights; that is, three very bright lights organized in a triangular shape. I observed these lights for about a minute or so until the lights of one object faded into darkness like the fade in a movie leading from one scene to the next; a minute or so later the other object's light's faded into darkness in the same way the lights of the first object faded. About 30 seconds thereafter, a new light came into view slightly to the west of where the lights of the other two objects faded. Then a second object appeared to the east of the lighted object and then a third light appeared. I immediately woke up my wife, and she observed the three lights. Within a few minutes, the lights of one object faded, then the lights of the second object faded and then the lights faded on the third object. The skyline was dark for about a minute then each object appeared again, about 30 seconds apart. At one point there was five objects (maybe six as I veiewed in a kind of mild astonishment. Three of the five objects appeared to be next to each other and the other two above the other three. I started to toy with the idea that the I was observing one object with different lighting sections. This was a distinct possibility but I can not be certain one way or the other. The whole situation lasted about twenty minutes. At no time was there significant movement of the lighted objects, but there was definitely slight movement. The objects stayed hovered in the same area with lights fading in an out. The fading of the lights did not suggest the object moved away at a fast speed. The lights were either turned off or covered over by clouds. I would vote for turned off. But I can tell you this for absolute certain: the lights were very bright and they must have been observed by many people. I could find nothing in the newspapers about it. So I got on Google to do a serach under the caption: Strange lights over coast of San Clemente. Ultimately my search lead me to this website and the posting of the above description. I am not into UFO's and I am hoping the unidentified flying objects I observed will soon become identified flying objects with more information.
